hi, everybody. i'm beth troutman. we've got today's best videos right here, right this minute. it's a beautiful fire balloon festival. >> but keep watching. >> because the crowd is about to panic as things go terribly wrong. >> my name is john. >> we showed you the viral video of a desperate father. >> her life is over. this is my daughter. >> now, hear the story of what happened to his daughter and the grandchild he lost. >> she was five months pregnant at the time. that's the little guy's feet. >> plus, a little boy watching right this minute is scared of santa. >> i'll be coming to your house. >> and a nature video we call --
gorillas in the wind. >> why this little lady might be getting too much fiber. each year in myanmar there's a fire balloon festival. it draws thousands of people. there are images all over the internet. when you think of fire balloons you think of the small balloons. these are the size of hot air balloons. as they go into the air, there are also fireworks and rockets in the basket. pretty incredible if you get to witness this in myanmar. >> what if that thing lands on the roof of my house and sets my neighborhood on fire. >> you're on to something with the idea maybe there is a little fear involved. one video in particular that we found that was shot by a photographer named kyle mela from this year's fire balloon festival. notice the fireworks are beginning to ignite before this balloon is in the air.
keep watching. >> oh! . >> geez. >> wow! >> that looks pretty bad. >> as you notice the people who were running toward that balloon are now high tailing it out of there and for good reason. apparently this kind of thing happens more often than you would like to think. he here's a video from 2009 of something similar happening. >> oh, no thefireworks arediheeople. >> they do it every year in the cityp. i think there is really to be a little fearful if you're heading out to this balloon festival. >> it's really cool but things go wrong and when they go wrong they're really bad. a lot of people think that drinking and driving will never affect them. it won't happen to them.
>> it's impossible to forget this video that i showed you yesterday. john is the father of a 20-year-old woman. her name is kelli. >> this is my daughter. >> she was hit by an accused drunk driver. her injuries were so severe she lost one third of her brain and she now lives in a persistent vegetative state. >> please don't drink and drive. >> we were able to track john down and learned the entire story. the truck being driven by 26-year-old matthew moore ran a red light and t-boned into the car that kelli was in, at 85 miles an hour roughly. in the car was her friend jeremy price and her 7-month-old baby. she was also five months pregnant at the time. >> oh. >> kelli was a nursing student and her friend jeremy was a former star high school athlete. he ended up passing away because of the injuries. >> what about the baby?
>> i want to show you my grandson. >> unfortunately her unborn child suffered traumatic brain injuries and he did end up passing away. to tell us more we have john via skype right this minute all the way from dallas. >> this is my daughter and grandson. this is the grandson that was in the back seat when that drunk driver hit her. he got a traumatic brain injury as well. i want to show you the first thing i saw when i got here to dallas. she cared and loved everybody. she was five months pregnant at the time. that's the little guy's feet. little feet. and he passed away that night. the only way we're going to change this drinking and driving and get it to stop is change minds and hearts one at a time. by making this video i think that -- well i tried to do that. >> the drunk driver that struck the car your car was in, what's his status now? >>s his name is matthew moore.
he was almost twice the legal limit. he was not injured. he's currently awaiting trial. >> her medical bills are already in the millions. how do you think you're going to pay for them? are you trying to raise money? >> i'm poor, disabled. and i'm just doing the best i can. i've got to give her a decent quality of life. i'll do whatever it takes. >> please don't drink and drive. northern california has been battered by serious storms and some redwoods didn't make it. check this out on a road betweens crescent city and humble, california. now you can see road crews are there trying to clean stuff up, get the road cleared away so people can get through. the one tree wasn't the only one that fell. >> oh.
>> almost went right in the back of their truck. >> it almost did. they had to move this truck out of the way because the trees didn't stop falling. you always hear about mudslides and heavy rains kind of weaken the soil. well that's what happened here because the trees weren't done collapsing. >> yeah. >> right there. those are the roots. the roots are coming up. watch. >> oh, geez. >> oh, wow. that was a huge, old tree. >> what do you call that? road closed. pilot had to be helped from his plane after he kind of missed sticking the landing. he wound up putting his light aircraft into some high tension power lines in south korea. the plane hit the wires and sort of flipped upside down and is
